my baby was taken away from us. he was sound asleep 4 cops and a women took him away from us.for a while we struggled to pump milk every two hrs.when i lost my milk a while back ago. my baby was still tangled up in the courts.we got him back temporally.i hate the pacifier i also hate the bottle. we our forced to deal with the damage.i have been trying to get him to latch at night when he wakes up very irritable.he will take the pacifier and go back to sleep. he suffers so much from the night terrors.i try ed today. he latched for a few Min's.i really want that bound back.he fights it.how do we reconnect.
i am sorry to read your story :( i have a friend who had a breastfeeding toddler taken, it is awful.
how old is your son? how long was he away from you? i think if you went to see a Lactation Consultant, it would maybe help. are you in the US? there are many factors.
don't be discouraged about bonding with your son- breastfeeding is not the only way. daddies, grandmas and aunties bond also!! i know it must hurt emotionally to not breastfed, i just don't want you to feel it is the only way.
drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.
